Gary Hooper: Hoping for more success with Celtic

The former Scunthorpe favourite has been offered a new deal but has yet to commit to the Scottish champions.

Norwich failed with a £7m bid in January while Hull City had a smaller offer dismissed last month.

QPR are now monitoring the situation but Hooper insists his focus is improving on last season's success with Celtic, which included a Champions League victory over Barcelona.

"I want to beat my tally from last season, that's the aim because I've done it every season," he said.

"I also have to get 20 or more league goals because I didn't get it just there, I only got 19.

"I want to play in the Champions League again, get into the group stages and get that feeling again.

"I know I wasn't playing in the game against Barcelona but it was still amazing.

"We also want to retain the title as obviously the league is still our priority."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
